[image]Hurricane Maria - NASA image created by Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory, using data provided courtesy of the team.
Hurricane Maria is spinning north over the Atlantic Ocean, well away from land. The storm reached its maximum intensity on September 6, 2005, several hours before the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image at 1:45 ADT (16:45 UTC). At this time, the storm had winds of about 160 kilometers per hour (100 miles per hour) with gusts to 195 km/hr (120 mph), down from its previous intensity of 185 km/hr (115 mph) with gusts to 220 km/hr (140...

[image]Dust storm over the Canary Islands - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
A thick pall of sand and dust blew out from the Sahara Desert over the Atlantic Ocean yesterday (January 6, 2002), engulfing the Canary Islands in what has become one of the worst sand storms ever recorded there.In this scene, notice how the dust appears particularly thick in the downwind wake of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands. Perhaps the turbulence generated by the air currents flowing past the island’s volcanic peaks is churning the dust back up into the atmosphere, rather than...

[image]Hurricane Emily - NASA image created by Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory, using data obtained from the Goddard Land Processes DAAC.
Tropical Storm Emily is shown here in the Atlantic Ocean several hundred kilometers north of the Brazilian coast on July 12, 2005. The image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite at 12:55 UTC (8:55 Eastern Daylight Time). The fledgling storm didn't have the characteristic look of a tropical storm at the time; it appeared to be just a collection of severe thunderstorms.At the time of this observation, however, winds were around 40 knots (...

[image]Phytoplankton Bloom off West Africa - Image courtesy the NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, and ORBIMAGE
Bright patches of green and turquoise water ? most likely phytoplankton blooms ? are visible in this SeaWiFS image of the Atlantic Ocean off of western Africa, collected on March 29, 2003. The yellowish haze in the lower portion of the image is dust from the continent. It is possible that the phytoplankton bloom may have been stimulated by the iron-rich dust blowing from the Sahara Desert out over the Atlantic in recent weeks.(Editor’s note: This image was posted because it is scientifically i...

Hundreds, possibly thousands of fires, were burning across central Africa on June 24, 2006, when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite passed overhead. The sensor collected this image and detected actively burning fires, which are marked in red. Smoke is particularly thick in the northwest (upper left) part of the image. Fires stretch eastward all the way from Angola’s Atlantic Ocean coastline (left) to Lake Tanganyika (upper right).The widespread...

[image]Carbon Monoxide over Africa - NASA image created by Jesse Allen, Earth Observatory, using data provided courtesy of the NCAR and University of Toronto MOPITT teams.
November marks the beginning of the fire season in the Sahel, where fire is used to clear land and prepare fields for planting. Such fires are not harmful of themselves, but they do release particles and gases into the atmosphere that impact climate and human health. One of the gases released in combustion is carbon monoxide, so it is not surprising that the Measurements of Pollution in the Troposphere (MOPITT) instrument aboard the NASA’s Terra satellite detected enhanced levels of carbon mon...
